Leitz Freezing Microtome

This is not really for the amateur but for those with some experience of microtomy. The microtome was used to cut frozen sections of fixed material by using the sudden expansion of compressed carbon dioxide gas from a cylinder. The connection pipe and freezing stage are present but should only be attached to a cylinder of gas by those who are experienced with the procedure. It currently has a stage that will take paraffin blocks attached to a wooden chuck which can also be sectioned by this microtome. Sectioning knife included. The microtome is clearly well used but is fully functional.
